and rain should start to taper off. so today that could be a problem for the game. take a look at what's going to happen in new york city as the orioles head to yankee stadium wednesday through friday to finish off the series. fairly nice. chance of rain on wednesday. 64 around first pitch on wednesday. 60 degrees first pitch on thursday. should be fairly sunny. friday up in the air. we have a chance of rain as the front moves in. for now, new york city looks dry on friday. hopefully it should turn out nice tonight. it's a night we have to watch out for. how much rain the stadium received. that doesn't seem like a whole lot to cause that rain delay. >> a quarter inch, i think. maybe a little more than that. people ask, do you have rain in the forecast. do you think it will be enough to cancel the game or cause a rain delay like last night? it's not possible to say exactly how it's going to affect things until we see it coming to maryland. wouldn't you agree with that? >> i would agree. that goes up to the officials,
not the meteorologist. >> on them, not on us. that's right. we just -- >> someone else to blame, how about that? >> all right, thank you, eva. we'll talk again next half-hour live at camden yards. not the greatest night for baseball, obviously. a chilly setup on the east coast. the jet stream is digging way down to the south. a little impulse riding along in the jet stream. a little piece of energy. one go off of the coast last night. we're in a bit of a low. should be dry this morning. 42 in columbia, 39 in mt. airy. 36 in fredericksburg. frost out there in the far western suburbs. but the clouds are starting to thicken up from the southwest. the system that's going to come in tonight that eva was talking about. the rain there from kentucky and tennessee pointing in our direction. so we think most of this will hold together and unfortunately, a chance for a little bit of rain tonight for the o's game. but during the day today, before that system moves in, start off with sunshine. the clouds will thicken up in
the afternoon. late in the day, a chance for rain showers. after a chilly start and the clouds coming in, it will be difficult to get out of the 50s again. expect a high of 57. the average high is 69. way below the mark. a little closer to the middle of the week, up to 62 tomorrow. nice day on tuesday. chilly, 70 on wednesday. but a front will go through wednesday night. that will knock the temperatures back to the 60s again going to the beginning of the weekend and it will stay there all the way from sunday, it looks like. below 70 for the next seven-to-ten days. the next threat of rain will hold off until sunday night after tonight, unfortunately. >> all right, tony, thank you. the time now, 5:49, 41 at the airport. still ahead, we'll break down the highlights from last night's night-ending loss by the o's. >> here's a look at maryland's lottery numbers.
